The ever-so-skinny residential tower wedged into the former site of an Enterprise Rent-a-Car garage at 73 East Lake Street is starting to look really slick.
The glass facade is quickly spreading up the tower’s narrow shaft as it climbs higher into The Loop skyline.
Of course, the photo above was taken from ground-level. Loop Spy Daniel sent along an updated photograph of the construction progress from the sky.You can really see how the narrow building is wedged between the Lake-Michigan Building (180 North Michigan Avenue) and the MDA City Apartments (63 East Lake Street).
Loop Spy Daniel tell us:
We will see in the days to come, but I think the building is about to top-out, and the band of windows continues to grow upward. They put the hardware on for the windows from the outside using a man lift that extends out from inside the building, but the windows themselves are set in place by workers who do all their work from inside. It is interesting to watch.
